Rebels’ young quarterbacks on alert with addition of Kelly

Even when Bo Wallace was still in an Ole Miss uniform, the question lingered: Will it be Ryan Buchanan on DeVante Kincade that prevails in the competition to replace the Rebels’ quarterback in 2015? Turns out it may not be either one. Another signal caller is set to enter the mix in East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly, who signed with the Rebels in December and still has his scholarship despite being arrested in the same month. The addition of Kelly blows the race wide open when spring practice starts later today. (March 3, 2015, Page 6, 7)

    Rebels look to rebound from setbacks at Alabama

    Ole Miss came crashing back to earth last week. Now with their NCAA Tournament hopes possibly depending on it, the Rebels will try to make up for it down the stretch. The Rebels lost back-to-back games for the first time all season with setbacks at home to Georgia on Wednesday and on the road to LSU on Saturday. Before that, Ole Miss had won eight of nine and was a team trending for the Big Dance. According on the latest bracket projections from national pundits, Ole Miss would still be in the field if the tournament started today, but with less than two weeks until Selection Sunday, the margin for error has evaporated. (March 3, 2015, Page 7)

      TOURNEY WATCH: Ole Miss sliding after winless week

      Ole Miss would still be a part of of the NCAA Tournament if it started today, but a rough week hasn’t left much — if any — room for error down the stretch. (more…) (March 2, 2015)

        TENNIS PREVIEW: Chargers set out for another state championshop

        When Oxford’s tennis team officially began practicing for the upcoming season earlier this year, there wasn’t any dialogue between players and their coach about goals and what needed to be done over the course of the year to ultimately achieve them. That would be wasted breath for the Chargers. (March 2, 2015, Page 6)

          Jones, OHS overwhelm Clarksdale in playoff opener

          Late in Oxford’s MHSAA Class 5A second-round playoff game Saturday night, Cortez Jones took an outlet pass from teammate Josh Gibbs on the wing in transition. He could’ve tried to beat the only defender in front of him to the rim, but Jones set himself behind the 3-point line and drained another shot instead. Oxford’s senior guard was in the zone. Jones scored from every spot on the floor and had a career night once he was done, finishing with a game-high 27 points and helping the Chargers advance to this week’s state quarterfinals with a 76-57 victory over Clarksdale in their final home game of the season. Oxford (26-4) will play Wayne County in the quarterfinals Thursday morning at 9 at Jackson State University. (March 1, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

              Kennedy wants more energy from Rebs down the stretch

              It’s hard for Andy Kennedy to fathom, even if he knows the effort is there. Whether he’s looking down the bench, gathering his team in a huddle or working to get what he thinks are advantageous matchups for his players on the court, Ole Miss’ men’s basketball coach isn’t seeing enough want-to from a team that should be showing plenty being that it’s heavily in the mix for a berth in the NCAA Tournament. (February 27, 2015, Page 6)

                BASEBALL PREVIEW: Talent makes Chargers an easy target

                Oxford spent last season hunting the best team in its division. In an ironic twist, the Chargers may very well be the hunted in 2015. There’s an entire outfield to replace as well as some pieces in the infield off a team that went 26-10 and made a run to the Class 5A North Half championship series a season ago, but Oxford isn’t lacking for talent. With three verbal commitments to the Southeastern Conference school in its backyard and a handful of junior college signees on the roster, it’s no secret Oxford will be one of the state’s top teams once again. (February 27, 2015, Page 7)

                  Bulldogs’ inside, outside combo cools off Ole Miss

                  Ole Miss didn’t stop much of anything Georgia did on offense and once again couldn’t make enough shots to overcome it on its home floor. As a result, Ole Miss suffered a rare fate Wednesday night. Georgia knocked down 11 3-pointers, Marcus Thornton was a force down the stretch, and the Bulldogs cooled off Ole Miss with a 76-72 victory at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. It was just the Rebels’ second loss in their last 10 games and just their fifth loss in league play, two of which have come to the Bulldogs. (February 26, 2015, Page 5A)
